before I began my journey as a digital nomad, finding housing that was affordable and community-based was something I was most apprehensive about. While hostels get the reputation for having a party atmosphere and hotels make it difficult to meet fellow long-term travelers (not to mention the higher nightly cost), I yearned for an in-between. Something for the modern, career-driven digital nomad. And that’s where co-living spaces came in. I’ve stayed at a number of co-living spaces across Europe, Asia, and South America, and they’re easily my favorite accommodation type. Here’s why they’re so great for digital nomads.
